The inscription on his grave:
'We shall meet him some bright morning in the upper garden there'.

About 51 years ago when I was 11 my gran told me once that her brother was missing presumed killed in action in ww1 , I sorry to say I am unable to remember his firdt name only his surname which was Risdale . My late gran Hilda was born in 1902 her late sister Florrie about 1900, so no doubt their brother was older than them to have served in the ww1, they were from Leeds west yorkshire England, when my gran was alive and I was a schoolgirl we would always have a 1 minute silence on the 11th hour of the 11th month in his memory ,just wish I could know more than his surname !

This is an information posting. Anyone who has a family member who died in WW1 please go to the Tower of London website and nominate them to be included in the nightly Roll of Honour (180 names read out each night at the Tower). It will continue until 11th November 2014. I nominated my 2 great uncles (Johnny Lyons and Harry Whittington) and was successful with both (their names being included on 9th and 11th of August 2014 respectively).

Visited this cemetery just two weeks ago to see the grave of my uncle, John Brick. He has been there for 96 years and to my knowledge, I am the first one of my family to visit. It was a very moving experience. It was lovely to see how well the cemetery is looked after and what a peaceful spot it is - not unlike home.

With the 100 year anniversary of WW1 just, I looked up if any 'Hopcutt' died in that war and found two, both brothers, from Wombourne, Staffordshire. As this was the brithplace of my parents (in 1909 & 1917) I was amazed that I was told/knew nothing about them, ergo my relationship to them...there are not that many 'hopcutt's around. I hope to learn more.

On behalf of the Trotter Family and Mrs Mary Dunn (Widow) I would like to record a tribute to the Grandfather, 156089 Private J.H.TROTTER of 57th. Machine Gun corps. (Infantry) I did not know.Wounded in France and returned to UK for hospital treatment; after which he asked to rejoin his colleagues back in France. He continued the fight, losing his life on 4th. October 1918. He left a widow, Mary and 3 sons; John, H., Kenneth and Ronald. In this year 2014, when we commemorate the outbreak of WW1, it is fitting that I leave this to the memory of this brave man and those who also lost their lives fighting for the freedom we all have today. Rest peacefully brave soldiers. "WE WILL REMEMBER THEM"

My father, Douglas Harrington, has been researching the death of his cousin whose aircraft was shot down over France and he is buried in Noyers-le-Val Cemetery - John Alan Richards. On your website is a photograph that my father would dearly like to have a print of - the gravesite of his cousin and his aircrew. Can that be arranged, please?

I have been trying to find Pierre Vanderveldun's email address without success to contact him directly about photos as stated in the NoyerleVal site - any help would be appreciated. Thanks. cvduo( at sign)shaw.ca

Laid a cross this year at the grave of pte RC Roberts of 2nd Battalion Monmouthshire Regt.
He fell in May 1918 and was laid to rest at La Kruele near Hazebroucke by my Grandfather Thomas Francis James of the same regiment.

We will drop by again to pay our respect and remember my grandfather who stood on that very spot where the boy was laid down.

United Kingdom Private Durham Light Infantry 10th Bn. Age: 29 Date of Death: 23/09/1917 Service No: 12866 C.7. CABIN HILL CEMETERY.

I have just returned from visiting, two great uncle's graves, one maternal and one paternal, they wouldn't have known each, but they were buried just 12 km and two years apart.
After seeing the beautiful, tiny Cabin Hill cemetery in the corner of a field surrounded by Corn on the Cobs blowing in the wind I think my Granny would have been very happy to know how serene her brother's final resting place is.

My Aunt lost her only Son at the age of 20 fighting for his country, as a young Boy my Aunt always treated me as the Son she lost. Today having contacted a Cousin in Canada who gave me the best info he could to locate the war grave. I typed in all the rough bits of info and your site came up and showed the grave of William Edward Griffiths, thank you.
